What is LUST?

Liverpool University Student Theatre, more commonly know as LUST, is a student run society based at the University of Liverpool. We welcome local students with a passion for musical theatre, performers and back-stage crew alike. Our aim is to provide quality theatre at low prices for our audiences and our members. Please help us to keep the society alive!

This semester we are putting on the fantastically cheesy 80s hit: Footloose. The musical is based on the popular 1984 film featuring that bloke Kevin Bacon off the telly. It's packed full of great songs, "Holding Out for a Hero", "Somebody's Eyes",  "Almost Paradise", and of course the title track "Footloose". Get your sweatbands and leg warmers ready, and come join us on a night that promises to have you moving your feet!

As we are a student-run society our funds are very limited. We have to rely on the money we make on each show in order to continue putting on full-scale musicals. As acquiring the rights and tech for shows is expensive, and we don't charge our audiences much, we sometimes struggle to afford everything a good production needs.

With your contribuition you will help pay for the rights, tech, costumes, props and promotion. Anything you're willing to donate is very much appreciated and will be used in some way or another towards the show!


On belhalf of all LUSTies, thank you very much!

We’ve been practising for a long time and it would be a shame not to hear the voices of our cast over our talented band. Therefore, with your money you’ve paid for the rental of one microphone for a night. We’re just so astonished with your kindness that we’re going to get you one of our new LUST t-shirts and have it signed by the cast for you!
